I was wondering if anyone has a problem with wide seatstays on their SB-95C? Was reading a raview of the bike on mtbr where they mentioned this problem causing heel strikes on the frame. I am about to pull the trigger on this bike but would like to clarify if this is a problem or not.

I've never had a PROBLEM from the seatstays (on my '12 95a), but I did notice some rub on the frame from my heel or calves.

So I put some protective tape on the frame to prevent paint rub, haven't thought about it since.

It's not that much of a problem for me and my big (size 10 UK) feet. I get a little more contact with one pair of shoes (Teva Pivots) than I do with others such as Bontrager Rhythm or Shimano MX30's but I have my frame wrapped with an Invisishield kit so it doesn't really effect anything for me..
